This was a hardened, veteran group of PAX who came out to Skunk. The Mumble chatter was so loud, I we actually had issues getting started at 5:30, it didn’t seem that anyone was really interested in listening to anything  I had to say (or  just another Tuesday- it’s ok, I only cry on the inside).

Luckily- I know just the trick for a group with the combined maturity level this one has- the good ole grade school “If you can hear my voice- clap once.” And it actually worked- two different times during the workout!*

One thing that sets this AO apart from others is the combination of weight and movement, hence ring around the church and climb the stairs. Strava says we got in 2.2, and #Stravadontlie

T-Claps to the pre runners- I don’t know who all of you were, but someone does. Good job- doing a 5k before this workout is no joke.

Additional T-Claps to Geraldo- didn’t have his KB on hand, so Rucked the whole thing. Didn’t even seen to phase him.

A solid amount of mumble chatter going on- some highlights that I heard involved Header celebrating Christmas with 16 Christmas Trees in his house, Smokey is preaching the Sunday before Christmas, and I think Geraldo and others were checking out my burpee form and muttering about my youth?? Not sure on that one…..

Great to see Fletch out at Skunk- and when I mean see, I mean watch as he zooms by me running around the church. He’s back and as bad (in a good way) as ever.

Sound off if I missed anything-thanks to Tulip and Funky Cold for the opportunity to lead!







*Everyone seemed to get what to do when I stated “If you hear my voice clap ____”, with the exception of Fireman Ed and Lois. They wouldn’t stop clapping- something may be off y’all.
